Britannica by Ruth Hogben

A while ago I worked with the multi talented Ruth Hogben, who is a photographer and filmmaker based in London and ran the idea past her of taking some existing film footage shot by Doc Rowe and re-editing it into a short film. Entitled, 'Britannica: Rites and Rituals', it will be screened at the London launch event for the tour and also broadcast live on the web. Ruth has made a start downloading the 22 hours of footage kindly loaned by the Doc, and we will be meeting up early this coming week to go over how things could be laid out. It should be an exciting re-contextualisation of some existing film imagery and will deliver the work to an audience who might not normally come across these kinds of subjects. It will also be the first film to be commissioned by the Museum. Hopefully the first of many more to come...
